Drug Interactions With Nilutamide

Drug Interactions With Nilutamide Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative reactions that can occur when nilutamide is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
CYP 2C19 Inducer Medications
The liver breaks down nilutamide using enzymes known as CYP 2C19 enzymes. Some medications known as CYP 2C19 inducers can increase the activity of these enzymes. Combining nilutamide with one of these CYP 2C19 inducers may decrease the level of nilutamide in your body, potentially making it less effective. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely if you take nilutamide with a CYP 3A4 inducer.
 
CYP 2C19 Inhibitor Medications
The liver breaks down nilutamide using enzymes known as CYP 2C19 enzymes. Some medications known as CYP 2C19 inhibitors can decrease the activity of these enzymes. Combining nilutamide with one of these CYP 2C19 inhibitors may increase the level of nilutamide in your body, increasing your risk for side effects. Your healthcare provider may monitor you more closely for side effects if you take nilutamide with a CYP 2C19 inhibitor.
